England vs West Indies

England vs West Indies”

West Indies' problems soon went from bad to worse. It took a snorter from Archer (1-55) to dislodge him, a bouncer after five full balls to surprise the left-hander and take the shoulder of the bat - Rory Burns was on hand to take the simple catch at gully.

Anderson, England's all-time leading Test wicket-taker, then struck either side of tea on his Lancashire home ground as the tourists slumped to 59-4.

In conditions which suited England's four-pronged pace attack, West Indies lost wickets at regular intervals.

Shai Hope, struggling for runs this series, was squared up by an Anderson delivery that moved away late - a desperately hard ball to play - and was caught behind for 17.

England, with all-rounder Stokes unfit to bowl following a quad injury, opted to play an extra seamer by dropping batsman Zak Crawley as they looked to win this three-match series 2-1.

In a campaign that marks worldwide cricket's return from lockdown, Broad then produced a classic nip-backer to have Roston Chase lbw for nine, the batsman not bothering with a review as West Indies collapsed to 73-5.

England had named an enlarged squad for the three-match Test series against the West Indies, with a number of players kept as reserves for any possible requirement of COVID-19 substitutions.

Ollie Pope had already been dropped at first slip by Rahkeem Cornwall by the time Gabriel, the unfortunate bowler on that occasion, pegged back his off stump with a beauty. He completed a 33-ball fifty with his eighth four.

Amid the collapse, Kemar Roach (4-72) reached 200 Test wickets when he removed Chris Woakes, and there was frustration for Jos Buttler, whose hopes of a second Test century were quashed when he fell for 67, Gabriel striking for the second time before lunch.

Roach added No 201, another catch for Jason Holder at second slip sending Jofra Archer (3) on his way, and the end of the innings seemed nigh.

In a partnership of 76 for the ninth wicket, Broad thrashed nine fours and one high-and-mighty six over midwicket.
